Carolyn’s Skincare and Facial Exercising Routine

Updated 3 26 2024

Since I’m asked from time to time what my skin care regime looks like, I want to share with you the routines I’ve been using for the last year to get the results I want. There are links below to the video clips of the routines and products I’m using. I’ve been using the CFF Gua Sha for one year now and my complexion has greatly improved! Take a look at the video clip where I talk about my personal experience with the CFF Gua Sha


Here is my weekly schedule –  Updated February 23, 2024

When I first wake-up in the morning, I apply the Hydrating Crème Masque and leave it on as I work out my body. Then, I go to this routine. Every day. 

  1. I rinse off the Hydrating Crème Masque with warm water.  
  2. Every morning, I use the CFF Gua Sha on the full settings, 5 to 6 times a week. Takes about 9 minutes to execute. First, I apply the following skincare products.
  3. The skincare products I use are: 
    1. Balancing Facial Cleanser – NOTE: I use this at night only. I rinse off the HCM with warm water in the morning. Then I layer on the following products both morning and night.
    2. Rejuvenating Skin Repair Serum 2 – I usually only use this in the evening session.
    3. CBD Antioxidant Crème - coming soon. You can email me and I can invoice you and send it to you. It's not yet up on this website, but CFF has the product for sale! 
    4. Crystal Serum C – I only use CSC in the morning with the Gua Sha. 
    5. Total Therapy Serum
    6. I perform 2 rounds only, of the Advanced Circle Up Rub (morning and night) or this routine! NEW! I do not have on any foundational makeup in this video clip. I'm 77 years old! 
    7. Moisturizer Plus 
    8. I perform the 3 Step Cheek Builder and Smoother only in the morning and only 3 days a week at this point. See the blog
    9. Then I use the CFF Gua Sha to help penetrate these products into the skin.
    10.  NEW: It takes about 30 seconds for a cream or serum to penetrate completely. I've asked Dermatologists and skincare experts and everyone has a different opinion about waiting between applications when layering. My take on this and my team and I experimented with this and we found you can simply apply one serum and then immediately apply the cream or other serum, etc...  They will be fine. They can mix a bit and your skin will love it. So, not to worry about waiting. We tried this. Besides being very annoying having to wait 30 seconds between layers, it's just NOT necessary. One Dermatologist said to me that the creams and serums are working and layering one on top of the other before the other one is completely absorbed shouldn't make any difference at all. 

  4. I perform the 28 foundational exercise routine, including the Brush once a week. I am on maintenance. Since I’m using the CFF Lower Face Filler, I have eliminated using the Face Firmer for now, so as not to overbuild my face. I use the advanced moves in the  Advanced Bonus Tips for foundational 28 exercises. Here is the rest of my routine. 
  5. The CFF Lower Face Filler once a week. 
  6. Face Polishing twice a week.
  7. Lower Jowl and Neck Firmer twice a week. 
  8. Every 2 weeks I use the Cartilage Smoother routine for my nose and ears. Again, I’m on maintenance with most of these routines, now. I did them more often, according to the directions, in the beginning, until I hit maintenance.  
  9. And, I use the Advanced Jowl Lifter with the Jowl Press, once a week. 
  10. Every so often, I use the Neck Ring Eraser video  and Jowl Slides video
  11. I use the Advanced Circle Up Rub twice a week when applying my skincare products and/or this new routine! Note: You can use this exercise routine more often … twice a day for 4 to 5 days a week if you want a “fast” lift to the face over a 6 week period.
  12. Twice a week I use the Age Spot Treatment. I add organic apple cider vinegar to the Botanical Masque. Check out the blog, Product tips webpage for more interesting ways to use the Botanical Masque and liquids! 
  13. I started off using the Philtrum Shortening, Lip Shaping Routine 5 times a week for 8 weeks and then 3 times a week for 8 more weeks. Now, I use it only once or twice a week. It took me about 7 months to shorten my Philtrum by 2 mm. I like the way I can reshape my lips and diminishes lip lines, so I stay on this one for now. Check out the Philtrum Shortening, Lip Shaping blog. 
  14. I execute the Advanced Eye Massage Routine twice a month. 
  15. I also execute the Mouth Corner Lift from time to time if I see any hint of puckering in the corners of my mouth. 
  16. I also use the Advanced Decolletage & Neck Shaping Routine once a week.
  17. I perform the Jawbone Restorer Video about 3 times a week to keep the jawbone challenged and strong. The second movement in this video is great at addressing a double chin. Firms up well!!! 
  18. Because my forehead is one of my weak spots, I do engage the Dancing Cs and the Tibetan Slide from time to time whenever I see the need. 
  19. Every 6 months I follow the Schedule for Radiant Skin for one month. 

There you go!
